The Academic Affairs Policy Coalition works to make academics at Georgetown better for students. Because academics are such a broad and important part of life at Georgetown, the team often collaborates with other Policy Coalitions and groups on campus. 

WHAT WE’VE DONE SO FAR:

  • Assessed student priorities for academic changes

  • Created a proposal for the expansion of available course credit for internships

  • Worked with registrar on registration

  • Worked with the GUSA Mental Health Team to evaluate academic aspects of medical leaves of absences

  • Discussed skill tagging for courses and created a proposal to initiate the skills tagging process

WHAT WE’RE PRIORITIZING FOR THE REST OF OUR TERM:

  • Continue to work with the administration on our internship credit proposal

  • Facilitate student involvement and input in the registration process and any changes that may occur going forward

  • Work to improve the process of medical leaves of absences based on academic concerns

  • Continue with our skills tagging proposal and begin the process of tagging courses

  • Work on new initiatives like textbook costs and study spaces
